So far I've done cosplays of Franziska Von Karma from Ace Attorney, Cynthia from Pokemon, and Fai D. Fluorite from Tsubasa. This Saturday I will be cosplaying as Misa Amane from Death Note and Integra Hellsing from Hellsing. The great thing about doing these two besides the fact that I've been wanting to do them for some time is that I didn't need to go buy anything special for either costume. Everything I needed for both costumes is already in my closet. ^_^ Except Integra shall be wearing a black suit instead of her olive one. If you'd like I can post the links to the photos once I have them. While I may not be an "experienced" cosplayer I do have some experience so feel free to ask me a question and I'll try and help you out. Some good advice I do have is to check out thrift shops for anything you can use. They are a lifesaver as I've found good portions of costumes there. Another word of advice: Only wear Fai's costume in super cold weather. It's super hot. D:
So there you have it. Feel free to ask me a question or thousand. ;D
